Church Covenant (from our Constitution)
We are part of this community because of our commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior. We have boldly declared our faith in Him and have been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
As baptized believers, we make these promises to each other:
With the help of the Holy Spirit, we promise to support each other in Christian love as we journey through life.
We promise to actively participate in the life of this church community to show God’s love and we will actively work to assure equality and justice for all people.
We promise to be actively learning more about Christ and how we are to live like Him, and to encourage our children, family, and friends to learn how to pursue a Christ-like life.
We promise to help each other in Christian love, to pray for each other, to give loving support in times of need, to be slow to take offense, and to always be ready to heal broken relationships.
We also promise that this spirit of commitment for each other will spill over from this church community into the larger body of believers, and that we will seek to connect with fellow Christians wherever we are. This is the faith covenant that we shall live by and that undergirds the ministry of First Baptist Church.
